Kyle Keeley is one of the twelve 12 year olds chosen to spend the night in the fabulous new library in town. Lucky? Yes! But it will take more than luck to win the challenge given to them all.
Mr. Lemoncello credits the library of his youth for his success in the board and video game business and has given back to his community by renovating a grand old bank to be the new town library, replete with every conceivable new gadget and luxury. Mr. Lemoncello is the Willy Wonka of books and this new state of the art library is his playground.
Kyle loves to play games more than read or participate in sports, like his two older brothers, but when challenged to find the secret way out of the library he can't resist.
You don't have to love books and puzzles to read this but it's more fun if you do.
Constant references to book titles and plots fill the pages, giving clues to the clever characters-- who will be the winner?
A fun midgrade read- especially for avid readers. How refreshing to have a contest where gentleness counts for something!
